One burning question that occupies the minds of OTC cannabis patch traders is whether or not the downward spiral of underperformance in Terra Tech Corp (OTCMKTS:TRTC) has finally been played out, creating a potentially interesting deep value opportunity. To further flesh out the narrative, the company just announced it has completed the renovation of its cultivation facility located on West Grand Avenue, Oakland, in California.
According to the release, “One of the goals of the facility will be to research and develop various cultivation techniques to optimize efficiencies and crop yields. Planting of new crops is expected to commence later this week and all cannabis cultivated at the facility will be sold under the Company’s premium IVXX™ brand to California’s medical and adult-use markets. The newly renovated facility features an upgraded power capacity to allow for more output and a larger vegetation room to support the cultivation of a greater variety of cannabis strains. The rooms are redesigned to incorporate better environmental controls, therefore improving the Company’s ability to cool and dehumidify the rooms and minimize the risk of mold growth. The facility is equipped with a total of 112 high pressure sodium light bulbs (28 bulbs per room) capable of flowering 1,120 pounds of cannabis a year. It also has 18 LED flowering lights that allow for more efficient and environmentally sustainable cultivation. After perfecting the LED lights growing style, Terra Tech aims to convert the facility to 100% LED flowering lights.”
